This study aims to examine the relationships between contingency factors and the effectiveness of the implementation of core e‐business strategies and to explore the influences on the implementation process quality for e‐business strategy.
To examine the relationships between the constructs in the research model, data were gathered via a questionnaire survey sent to 650 manufacturing enterprises in Taiwan.
The survey results indicate that some factors influence the effectiveness of the implementation of core e‐business strategies. The implications of the findings for practice and future research are also examined.
Business managers or IS executives of enterprises should consider these environmental, organizational and technological contingency factors while implementing e‐business strategies.
Numerous researchers have proposed various studies relating to e‐business strategies. However, these studies focused on developing e‐business planning frameworks and conducting case studies, and little attention has been paid to empirical studies examining the influences of contingency factors on the implementation of e‐business strategies. The results of this study will be of interest to business managers or strategic planners who are initiating or conducting e‐business strategic planning exercises, as well as to researchers in the field of information systems strategic planning and management.
